Facebook Profile Tips for Maintaining a Professional Image

Facebook Profile Tips for Maintaining a Professional Image: Whether you are using your Facebook page to promote your business or not, it is still your public face to your network of friends and family—friends and family that may be WONDERFUL sources of referrals, if you don’t offend them on Facebook!

Think about how you would feel if you were an outsider looking at your Facebook profile. Is there anything there that might just not need to be shared with the rest of the world? Remember, depending on your privacy settings, every picture that you post, every note that you post on someone’s wall, every status update, every group that you join, every application that you add is broadcasted to your entire network. So before you post that picture from your best friend’s bachelor party or become a fan of the Insane Clown Posse, consider just who is going to be seeing your profile.

This is not at all to say that your profile has got to be strictly business, in fact that is not the case at all. Posting photos, updating your status, joining groups, and sharing your favorite activities make you a real person. That kind of transparency is a great way to build trust and have others feel comfortable doing business with you. Just keep it clean!
